3 stars This is a good effort by prog rock experimenter and pioneer DAVID SYLVIAN along with such heavywieghts ROBERT FRIPP,BILL NELSON,MEL COLLINS,BJ COLE and many others! The record version of this release is a double lp,but I am pretty sure that the cd version is a single. In any case what we have here are two lps in one really. The first has songs with lyrics and some even sound a bit popish for my taste(this was released in 1986 after all!).The secnd lp is more ambient and electronica oriented. Some very soothing soundscapes ala FRIPPOTRONICS. In many ways reminds me of some of the work done later by ambient pioneers ROBERT RICH and STEVEN ROACH. All in all,a collection worth having and one that showcases both sides of the talented artist DAVID SYLVIAN.
